This year is going to be Westridge Elementary School first Battle of the Books!  This competition tests knowledge and recall of the Virginia Readers Choice (VRC) books.  Students work together in a team of students to identify and match quotes and answer questions about the book titles in a timed contest.  Students will be asked to read the books on their own time.  However, we will be meeting monthly to discuss each of the books and create questions.

We will meet for the first time on November 18th at 8:15AM after reading the first book. 

The other dates will be December 16th, January 13th, and February 10th (snow date February 24th) all the meetings will be at 8:15AM and students will have to find their own way to get to school.  The battle will take place in March!

We will be reading: The Losers Club by A. Clements,

Front Desk by K. Yang,

The Adventures of Henry Whiskers by G. Priebe

They Didn’t Teach THIS is Worm School by S. Lia

BOOKS WILL BE PROVIDED BY THE SCHOOL

 

The club is open to a max of 20 students.  If you enroll in the club you must agree to come to all the meetings and read all of the books.

 

 

With Westridge Pride,
